Independent Testing

In a connected world where competitory benefits hang on user experience on top of sole individual applications, traditional independent testing models lack relevance. Current software testing environments ensure a seamless user experience and business process persistence across a wide network of business applications, mobile devices, smart devices, media channels and development environments.

ALTEN Calsoft Labs, a trusted and reliable technology partner for global organizations, has been providing business aligned Independent Testing and QA transformation services reining the power of its own customized CMMi and TMMi compliant methodologies and frameworks that:

  • Enable test innovation and integration leveraging SMAC (Social – Mobile – Analytics – Cloud) technologies
  • Deliver measurable improvements in quality, faster TTM (Time-to-Market), cost effectiveness and more efficient IT operational processes
  • Help businesses achieve quality and business transformation

We at ALTEN Calsoft Labs think beyond functional test automation by mapping test requirements to the business needs of your clients. Our scalable and modularized software testing framework meets the demand of application agility, quality assurance, test automation and continuous testing. Several accelerators are utilized to design agile test strategies, that satisfies the customer requirements of digital testing, mobile testing, cloud testing, data testing, security testing, ERP testing, performance testing, manual testing and automation testing services.

Our concept to market automation testing services have helped our customers with:

  • Higher Return on QA Investment: We help customers save up to 40% in direct staff cost and another 10-20% in associated costs through our unique HAT (Hybrid Agile Testing) model.
  • Pay as you go Model for Test Infrastructure: With our Cloud based testing lab, customers can now pursue test automation without any upfront investment in testing tools & infrastructure.
